Welcome to Baker & McKenzie in Russia

Baker & McKenzie was the first international law firm to open an office in Moscow in 1989. Since then we have built a reputation as an experienced and reliable legal adviser, combining deep knowledge of local law with seamless execution across borders and practices.

We are one of the largest and strongest legal teams in Russia, and our antitrust, dispute resolution, employment, mergers and acquisitions, tax, real estate, and intellectual property practices are consistently ranked among the country’s leading. Our offices in Moscow and St. Petersburg have more than 120 qualified lawyers combined, including 27 partners providing sophisticated legal advice to leading Russian and international corporations, banks and financial institutions.



Starting September 2016, companies collecting the personal data of Russian citizens are required to maintain the databases used for storage and processing in Russian territory. Keep up with developments regarding this issue, and determine the impact and implications this may have for your business.
The country’s system of "patents" for foreign workers, previously limited to those employed by private individuals, has been extended to employees of individual entrepreneurs and legal entities. Other changes involve new reporting rules for Russian companies hiring foreign workers.
Russia extends the application of nationwide blocking injunctions that it previously introduced for rights owners of movies and TV shows. Effective May 2015, the expansion covers owners of other types of copyrighted content. We explain what this means for internet businesses, and copyright and website owners.
